Clipping:The new scoring system
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Saturday, May 4, 1872|
It is about time that every base ball club should have a scorer competent to set down the details of the game properly. The old system of scoring by outs and runs only is not all that is required. The new plan embraces the figures of the runs scored, the first base hits made, the total number of players put out by each man, and the total number of times each assisted in putting out players. This, with the total runs earned, and total times first base is obtained by fielding errors, suffices to give the complete statistics of a game. Of course, the record of runs each innings is very requisite as showing the progress of the contest.
